YORKSHIRE BEST BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY – THE MADISON BOU WAY

It’s time to get a little out of your comfort zone.

You see, the greatest things happen in our lives when we step out of our comfort zone a little. When we experience new things that life has to offer.

I always think of life a little like a smorgasbord – a buffet of different kinds of foods. Only by tasting each one will you know what you like. It’s a taste experience and for many it’s a little out of their normal comfort zone.

Travelling abroad to a new country can be a little out of their comfort zone for many.

The more different food you try, the more you find you like. Similarly, the more countries you visit, the more you get a true understanding of the world. It’s all part of our growth experience.

Sometimes we take risks with relationships and sometimes we take financial risks. Risk-taking can be bold, daring and different. Risk-taking can make you feel alive. The excitement of it can take us away from the hum drum of our everyday lives.

Sometimes the ‘hum-drum’ of our routine, everyday life can suppress the wild-child within us.

After years of raising the kids or working in the same office, we can often lose ourselves a little. We prioritise ourselves as less important than everyone else in our family. So many of our clients come to us after feeling lost.

They want to rediscover the inner person they used to love.

This is our biggest strength.

The ability to help you love yourself again. We can help you to lose your inhibitions and unleash your sassy side. We want to help you rediscover your true beauty and confidence and we are committed to empowering women through transformative, boudoir experiences.

Every Madison Bou Yorkshire Best Boudoir Photography Experience is created around your particular style and tastes. Every experience is unique.

We don’t clock watch either. You are the only client we will schedule on your day. A Madison Bou Best Boudoir Photography Experience is all about YOU!

For stepping a little out of your comfort zone and trying something a little daring and different, you will be assured of the most incredible images to treasure for a lifetime!

CURVY BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY – FOR WOMEN WITH CURVES

CURVY BOUDOIR PHOTOGRAPHY IN YORKSHIRE

OK, this is a big sticking point for many our clients.

Boudoir can be intimidating, especially if you feel larger than women you see being photographed. Almost everyone in magazines is stick thin and so many of our clients tell us they want to ‘lose a few pounds’ before they book a boudoir style photoshoot. This is a bigger sticking point than money (“I need to save up first.”) and health (“I need to recover first” )

Well, we will say now – pretty much everyone wants to lose a few pounds first and yet, pretty much everyone will look amazing right now. Yep, now. At the weight and shape you’re in right now.

No need to be intimidated by a Madison Bou Photoshoot. We love women with curves because women with curves have shape, character, personality and women with curves frankly, look better in a boudoir style photoshoot than stick-thin model types who look like they permanently starve themselves. (Actually to be honest, we can get great pictures from stick-thin model types as well, but it just seems harder somehow. Please, have a good meal every once in a while and cheer up! )

Trust us when we say, there is a huge difference between what you see in your mirror and what we see through the camera. In front of your mirror, at home, your inner voice has become well trained in the art of ripping yourself to shreds. When you stand in front of us, we will help put you back together.

No judgements, just fabulous pictures of you looking sexier than ever.

before after

I was feeling lost in myself amongst the many roles I play out in life, mum, step mum, wife, daughter, sister… I needed something to kick start my self confidence, to find ‘me’ again, to remind me who I can be. I also wanted something to help create a positive body image in my own mind, something I’ve struggled with my whole life. Prove I can be a ‘lady’ and look a little glamorous.

It’s was a great day. Hair and make up well done and nicely relaxing. Shoot felt real. Hard work at times but that produced beautiful shots that weren’t over-edited. I went max on outfits 😂 which resulted in amazing photos I struggled to choose between.

MADISON BOU – YORKSHIRE GLAMOUR PHOTOGRAPHERS

How do YOU glam up?

Do you never go out of the house without a full face on?

Maybe you never get the chance to glam up at all. The kids suck every iota of energy out of you.

Maybe you feel that nothing you wear looks good on you so you default to layers and black because it’s the safe option.

You see, everyone’s different and we photograph every type of woman of any age and body shape.

Wherever you are in your life journey, we’re here for you.

We like to call what we do – MODERN GLAMOUR

Totally unlike the ‘glamour photography’ of yesteryear. A million miles away from the old Page 3.

Our brand of Modern Glamour is Fashion magazine Style Beauty.

Stunning hair and Make-up, beautiful dresses and clothes. Fully styled around you and you alone.

We aim to enhance your natural beauty and ensure your best assets pop!

If you fancy going large on the Glam, Jayne has spent two decades traveling and working on dance stages around the world. – Including stages like Moulin Rouge in Paris, stages in Tokyo and Vienna.

She will help style you from top to bottom. You’ll have plenty of tuition well before you even arrive at the studio on the day of your photoshoot. Jayne will talk outfits at length and send you a unique style guide packed with ideas.

This is ALL ABOUT YOU  so you’ll wear whatever works for you and to a comfort level that suits you.

And after your day at Hazlewood Castle, your fabulously sexy  photographs will empower you for a lifetime!

 

Trying to figure out if you want to do a boudoir photography session or a glamour portrait session?  Not sure which is which?

The dividing line between glamour and boudoir is quite subjective but in a nutshell , Glamour is more focused on hair and make-up, beauty and beautiful dresses. Think of the front page of Vogue or Vanity Fair. Imagine wearing your favourite ‘going out’ dresses in a beautiful Hazlewood Castle State Room with Chesterfields, open log fires and antique furniture. These are timeless portraits with lots of eye contact and connection with the camera. All of our clients get some modern glamour portraits and wearing your favourite outfits are a perfect way to get comfortable in front of the camera.

Many clients ask to try a little boudoir. (Some clients dive right in and want lots of boudoir, but, in truth, the majority want to dip their toe in the water before diving right in )

For us, Boudoir photography doesn’t just mean that you are in your underwear.  It’s an approach to creating a range of portraits that is more personal, more sensual, more evocative, more mysterious and more alluring than a typical portrait session.

All our photoshoot experiences include professional make-up, hair styling and magazine-quality retouching, but they are there to enhance what you already have, not transform you into something unrealistic.

So our photoshoots really do work to make you feel better about the REAL YOU

We are Yorkshire Glamour photographers and we would love to glam you up for the day. x

 

THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM – THE COST OF BOUDOIR

THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM – THE COST OF BOUDOIR

THE TRUE COST OF BOUDOIR

THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM – THE COST OF BOUDOIR

It’s all worth paying for because they are beautiful and actually make me feel so good about myself. Thank you again for making me feel like this.

Kirsty

One of the first questions people ask us when they come to us for a Boudoir Photoshoot is “How much does it cost?”

After all, it’s not something you do every day is it?

Actually, it could be that the real cost of a Madison Bou Experience is NOT treating yourself.

Denying yourself the empowerment and the thrill of a Madison Bou photoshoot is to miss out on one of the experiences of a lifetime.

I can’t even begin to express how good my shoot was… I don’t just mean the quality of the pictures. .. or the careful angles … lighting .. make up… styling and positioning. .. I mean the way they make you feel. .. from the minute you enter… thru to the after care … I massively struggle with body image and I felt beautiful… valued… empowered.. its a cliché I know. .. but I think it has begun to change me… how I see myself. .. and how I value myself.

Ellie

How much do you think the experience Ellie had (above) is worth to her?

But, you already suspect that this experience will be worth a lot to you, that’s why you want to do it in the first place!

At Madison Bou – We genuinely feel that the experience we offer should be available to EVERY woman.

We agonise over every product we sell and do everything we can to offer extraordinary value for everyone of our clients.

We now offer flexible, interest free payment plans that work for your budget.

We also offer £100 discounts if you and a friend book sessions on the same day.

The best bit?

You will enjoy your Madison Bou experience well after your shoot day is over.

Your confidence will soar for years to come as you look back on your beautiful photographs.

How much would an experience like that be worth to you?

Shopping around photographers on the basis of price alone is missing the point.

You first need to decide how much an experience of a lifetime is worth to you. You need to ask yourself, how much would you be prepared to pay for something that will make you feel good about yourself for many years to come.

That amount – The amount that you’d pay for this experience is the amount of worth you actually place on yourself. 

Now that is a real investment and as such, will be worth every penny.

Read what Faye told us (below) and imagine how valuable that experience would be to you

 

I just wanted to say a massive thank you for the fabulous job you did making me feel like a true beautiful person that I am. My confidence now, after this experience, is so much more amazing. No more do I walk down the street with my head down low. It’s now held high and I own that pavement! Thank you again. You are fantastic!

THE ART OF SELF LOVE – EASY FOR US TO SAY

Honestly, it’s a day to day struggle.

Looking at the mirror and seeing something nice is a challenge. Most days I look in the mirror and see someone I don’t recognise at all. (Or rather, I see someone I recognise only too well – My mother )

Aging is a horrid process.

What it does to your body is frankly, criminal.

Even though my work is about finding the beauty in other women, I still struggle to do the same for myself.

Dave tells me I’m beautiful 20 times a day and I just laugh, nervously.

Behind a confident exterior is the same negativity, just like everyone else.

WHY DO WE FIND IT SO HARD TO LOVE OURSELVES?

When our clients come to us we always ask them “what do you love about yourself”?

Almost every woman finds it difficult to answer.

It’s difficult. Most women don’t like blowing their own trumpet.

We laugh nervously when paid a compliment about our looks.

We often say things like “I wish my boobs were fuller,  my bum smaller, my teeth whiter, my nose smaller, my legs skinnier….”

They’ll say “Don’t photograph my bum, my fat knees, my mummy tummy “

They can list all the things they don’t like almost without thinking but ask what they DO like and they struggle to list one thing.

Eventually, when pressed, they’ll answer with a small list of nonphysical attributes they don’t mind about themselves… Sense of humour, being a Mum, hard-working etc …

WHY CAN’T WE SIMPLY SAY – “I AM PERFECT, JUST THE WAY I AM” (No ifs, no buts)

THE MADISON BOU STUDIO IS A PLACE TOTALLY FREE OF JUDGEMENT

Say goodbye to your inner critic. That wicked Gremlin on your shoulder whispering negative thoughts in your ear.

Instead, we encourage you to learn to be kinder to yourself and others.

The next time you look into the mirror try and be kind to yourself.

See yourself without judgment.

A beautiful woman who is uniquely you.

This is how your friends and family see you.

This is how we see you.

Being kind though is a daily work in progress. Some days you really don’t feel that good about yourself and that’s just life. I know how that feels.

Self Love is hard.

Every day, though, try and be a little more positive and you may find the difference in your life is astonishing.

This is why we do what we do.

EXCUSES NOT TO DO A BOUDOIR PHOTOSHOOT – I DON’T KNOW HOW TO LOOK SEXY

EXCUSES NOT TO DO A BOUDOIR PHOTOSHOOT – I DON’T KNOW HOW TO LOOK SEXY

I DON'T KNOW HOW TO LOOK SEXY!

LAME EXCUSE TO NOT HAVE A BOUDOIR SHOOT

EXCUSES NOT TO DO A BOUDOIR PHOTOSHOOT – I DON’T KNOW HOW TO LOOK SEXY

“I DON’T KNOW HOW TO LOOK SEXY”

No one comes to our studio and knows how to look sexy straight away. It takes models years of training to pull off a ‘sexy look’ the moment they step in front of a camera. Don’t even get us started with the Instagram selfie ‘Duck Face’ pout! Ridiculous and most definitely NOT SEXY! 

Our job is to coach you every step of the way.

From, the look in your eyes

All the way to your fingertips

How you point your toes

How you arch your back

All of that we take care of.

Another excuse people give us to not do a boudoir shoot is

“AFTER I LOSE 10LBS”

Well, you may lose that 10lbs or you may not lose that 10lbs but one thing we do know is this…

You come wanting to be a little skinnier but you will leave thinking

“Wow! I cannot believe how amazing I look”

You will love the way you look in your photos but you will certainly regret using this as an excuse to not have this experience.

 

sexy

Another lame excuse…

“I’M NOT PHOTOGENIC”

OK, while it’s true some people are easier to photograph and take a little longer than others, everyone can be photographed to look beautiful.

What photogenic really means is how comfortable you feel in front of the camera. It doesn’t mean pretty, it just means that some people are more comfortable in front of the camera than others.

That’s why we’re here. To help you to become comfortable in front of the camera.

“BUT I’M NOT SEXY”

Please stop!

How to look sexy is a state of mind.

You’re a Mum, you’re a teacher, a Doctor, whatever you do helps to define you but it doesn’t tell the whole picture. You are more than those things and one of those things IS sexy.

We have the experience to bring out your inner sexy.
